This rule is not subject to the requirements of this executive order, as it does not matter under Executive Order 12866. The Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as amended, requires federal authorities to consider the potential effects of regulation on small businesses when implementing the rules. The term “small businesses” includes small businesses, non-profit organizations that are independently owned and not dominant in their fields, and government jurisdictions with fewer than 50,000 inhabitants. This rule does not affect entities. This means that there will be no economic impact on businesses. Therefore, in accordance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act [1], the Ministry of Defense certifies that this rule will not have a significant economic impact on a significant number of small businesses.

The term “cooperative research and development agreements” within the meaning of 15 U.S.C. 3710a. (a) requests class deviations from DoDGARs (see ยง 21.335 b) and 21.340 (a)), or derogations from the provisions of 31 U.S.C.

6301 to 6308, which govern the appropriate use of contracts, grants, and cooperation agreements (see 32 CFR 22.220). Award means a grant, cooperation agreement, technology investment agreement or any other non-award instrument subject to one or more parts of the DoDGAR. . . .
